What About the Weather?
Florida in Summer you will almost certainly see a chance of rain EVERY SINGLE DAY, normally somewhere between 30 and 50%. Do not let this freak you out!! What a 50% chance of rain means is that it is going to rain somewhere in the 7 county area and this will more than likely be INLAND in the late afternoon. The coastal areas receive a lot less rain than inland as the sea breeze tends to keep the storms inland, away from the coast line.
